1 Lord, who may dwell in your tabernacle? ♦
Who may rest upon your holy hill?
2 Whoever leads an uncorrupt life ♦
and does the thing that is right;
3 Who speaks the truth from the heart ♦
and bears no deceit on the tongue;
4 Who does no evil to a friend ♦
and pours no scorn on a neighbour;
5 In whose sight the wicked are not esteemed, ♦
but who honours those who fear the Lord.
6 Whoever has sworn to a neighbour ♦
and never goes back on that word;
7 Who does not lend money in hope of gain, ♦
nor takes a bribe against the innocent;
8 Whoever does these things ♦
shall never fall.
